To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion
In their well-being and prosperity alone lies my happiness
The day dawns close when India will be celebrating its 69th Republic Day with great pomp and show. This day not only celebrates coming into force of the Indian Constitution, but it also highlights the various achievements as well as the remarkable culture of our great country through a grand parade at the India Gate in New Delhi, the capital of India. The entire country waits with bated breath to witness this parade which personifies unity in diversity that is characterised by perfect coordination and discipline. The parade is a perfect example to the entire world of how discipline can shape every aspect of life, including something as simple yet as critical as driving a car.
It is no secret that undisciplined driving is the cause of most vehicle accidents in India. Over-speeding, not sticking to lanes, driving on the wrong lane, driving without a valid license, etc – disobeying traffic rules is more the norm than an exception, making Indian roads highly unsafe.
However, discipline is not just the responsibility of the person driving the car. It is as much necessary for the law-keepers on the road to ensure that discipline is maintained, for smooth traffic management and general public convenience. Hence, the people behind the wheels should also know what exactly the law is. In fact, as soon as you get a driving license and starts driving, you should also be privy to information regarding your rights and responsibilities as a driver. This will go a long way in keeping the entire system in balance.
In a first of its type initiative, Truebil has taken the lead – to educate vehicle drivers about their rights and responsibilities. This Republic Day, we are launching a website that will provide a comprehensive guide to Truebil customers as well as the general public, about the privileges that every person who drives a car is entitled to. Aptly named ‘The Constitution of Driving’, this guide will also apprise people about the fines and punishments they may have to bear in case they land up on the wrong side of law.
A printed copy of ‘The Constitution of Driving’ will be freely distributed to all Truebil customers and everyone who visits our offices. A PDF version of this guide will also be available for free download or printing on a dedicated website http://constitutionofdriving.com/.
At Truebil, we have always believed in strengthening the system so that cars occupy a pride of place in our lives and our roads, making driving a pleasure for everyone. This is our small way of giving back to those who care about making India a better place, for a country that has made us who we are.
We are optimistic that our new initiative will reaffirm our commitment towards nation-building, while ensuring road safety for all!
